Spec-TRACER now directly integrated with IBM DOORS
December 10th, 2014 by Louie De Luna
In response to user feedback, Aldec has developed a direct integration between IBM® Rational ® DOORS ® and our requirements management tool, Spec-TRACER™, to enable users to extend the traceability data in DOORS to FPGA design and verification elements.
Aldec has a strong 30-year+ history of asking and listening to the engineering community and we’re proud to say, thanks to your requests, that Spec-TRACER 2014.12 featuring direct integration with DOORS… is now available to test drive.
Below you’ll find an overview of the Spec-TRACER/DOORS tool flow. DOORS remains the main source and environment for managing board requirements and other higher level requirements, while Spec-TRACER remains the main source and environment for managing FPGA requirements, conceptual design data, detailed design data, test cases, test procedures, test results, traceability data and review activities. Spec-TRACER also remains the main source for generating all the pertinent reports for the FPGA project such as requirements documents, verification procedures, test results, impact analysis reports and project status reports.
